Seasonal Activities Re-appropriated for Autumn

For those who hate fall, but still want to fit in. Columbus Day caroling. It should be noted that there are currently no popular songs about Columbus Novemberpole festival—the spiritual cousin to the Maypole festival. This event differs by involving only one ribbon and a bunch of poles. Making butternut squash angels—like making snow angels, but messy, unsatisfying, inefficient, expensive and somehow more pointless. Celebrating Independence Day in October—fireworks, barbeques… all taking place after the equinox. There’s no wrong time… Keep Reading

Americans Confused by Lack of Syrian Invasion

Expressing impatience and confusion, Americans are starting to wonder when President Obama is going to finally just send some troops to indefinitely occupy Syria. “I just thought that was our thing,” Hartford, Connecticut resident Susan Hayworth said. “It’s like, if we’re not going to invade Syria, then what are we going to invade?” Many people are starting to wonder why they have not seen any recent news footage of U.S. personnel carriers scanning Syrian roads for IEDs or heartfelt high… Keep Reading

French Bonbons

I was once a human food slave. I labored for hours bringing steaming substance to lazy people from a kitchen no more than 30 feet away. I painted a smile across my face and reapplied it in the bathroom should it start to melt from sweat. I laughed at bad jokes, tossed napkins and straws like bullets and grenades, I balanced like squirrel on a wire and danced like a monkey for the crowd. The strangers rewarded me with little… Keep Reading

A Tribute to John Candy

Reaction to South Oval from a North Campus Student

Once, the legend would start, there was this beautiful space on South Campus. It was even farther south than the Oval, but it was much more wondrous, a deep green valley of Frisbee throwers and between-class sun-tanners. It seemed the home of elves, not the cookie box kind but the tall, elegant Tolkien elves. The music appeared to strum from the tree branches themselves, reverberating in the roots underneath your feet in an effort to encircle you in the hum.… Keep Reading
